Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber are set to battle it out to be crowned Wimbledon Ladies’ champion on Saturday - Bobbie Jackson takes a look at the Wimbledon betting.
Williams To Win @ 1/2 - BET NOW
The American had only played in three tournaments prior to Wimbledon after taking time off the tour to give birth to her first child. After initially struggling to find her feet, Williams has looked back to her best at SW19 and her superior record over Kerber suggests she has enough to go all the way once again.
She has won six of her eight meetings with the German, with one of those coming in the final Wimbledon in 2016. Kerber’s journey over the last two years has been remarkable, having won her maiden Grand Slam at the Australian Open in 2016 before her loss in the Wimbledon final and then ending the season with the US Open crown.
The two-time Grand Slam champion slipped off the pace in 2017 but has looked much more like her former self this season. Williams hasn’t been seriously tested yet on the grass and although Kerber is likely to prove her toughest match, Williams is widely expected to get over the line.
Williams To Win 2-0 @ 5/4 - BET NOW
Williams is looking to seal a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title and she could well do that in style by claiming a straight-sets victory. Her run to the final has seen Williams drop just one set from her six outings, having beaten Italian Camila Giorgi 2-1 in their quarter-final clash.
The seven-time Wimbledon champion certainly won’t be fazed by the big-match atmosphere and she will also be comforted by her most recent clash with Kerber. She saw off the world number 10 in straight sets when they went to head-to-head in the final at Wimbledon two years ago.
Indeed, Williams has never dropped a set against Kerber when on the winning side of the tie and she will be looking to extend that impressive record on Saturday.
Williams To Win First Set 7-5 @ 12/1 - BET NOW
Expect Kerber to put up a strong fight in the opening set of this mouth-watering showdown on Centre Court, but Williams should have the know-how to see it out. Williams won 7-5 in the first set when the duo met in the 2016 final and Saturday’s showpiece could shape up in similar fashion.
Kerber has shown already at this year’s edition that she is capable of turning up the aggression, but many have struggled previously in trying to match Williams in that area of the game.
